So this is a topic where you can share all that is wrong with what people in your country eat, either if the name is weird or if its outmost disgusting, ive traveled around in europe alot but ive never found anything stranger then what they eat where i live/lived

1 Smalahove (Norwegian)



yeah this is what you think, its a dish made from a sheep's head, originally eaten before Christmas, in some preparations, the brain is cooked inside the skull and then eaten with a spoon or fried. Originally, smalahove was typically eaten by the poor, but today it is considered a delicacy.


2: Surströmming (Swedish)



Surströmming is fermented Baltic herring and is a staple of traditional northern Swedish cuisine. When opened, the contents release a strong and sometimes overwhelming odour; the dish is ordinarily eaten outdoors. According to a Japanese study, a newly opened can of surströmming has one of the most putrid food smells in the world, even more so than similarly fermented fish dishes such as the Korean Hongeohoe or Japanese Kusaya (yes thats how bad it smells)


3: Göteborgs Rapé ((Swedish) More fun then disgusting)



Göteborgs Rapé is a popular brand of Swedish snus, a pasteurized smokeless tobacco product. Now snus is something that is VERY common in Scandenavia, its like cigaretts, only that it contains about 10x the amount of nicotine, and instead of smokeing it you place it under your lip, the first time people try snus, even though they smoke, people normaly tend to start feeling quite ill or even throw up due to the overwhelming taste.


Hope you enjoyed it and please share somethings you dont understand how people in your country can eat

I once saw canned pickled silkworm larvae for sale in my local Korean market. Looks like nobody bought any so I can't say for sure whether people actually eat them loll
